Limited Editions, Spash Releases, Soft Covers and more. What does the future hold for Games Workshop?
A lot of Speculation has been going around lately about the ?new direction? of the company, via the new CEO, but nothing concrete has emerged.
One thing seems to be sure, most of the rumors are all the same. Personally I?m not sure who Steve the Warboss is or why everyone seems to be quoting him as of late, BUT he has some good intel up until now so let?s go with it shall we?
Remember be sure to put your tin foil hats on this may all just be a bunch of random conjecture!

-Shield of Baal: Leviathan (and all later releases Expansions for 40k) will return in Softcover.
-Armybooks, Codices and Suppliments will all come sometime next year in Softcover Versions with a lower price.
If this pans out, I have very high hopes for new CEO Kevin Roundtree. Decisions like this indicate a rolling back of the ?all collectors all the time? presentation that 40K and WFB have become of late.
It reflects a business pragmatism that accepts the wide financial spectrum of the GW customer base out there.
It acknowledges that yes there is a segment of the GW customerbase that indeed wants the ultra-elite leatherbound, scented with myrhh, gold-leafed editions of codices. BUT there are ALSO a lot of customers who want value priced rulebooks that allow them to put more of their hard earned cash into the fantastic GW models.
If true ? It?s a good move and I salute it.

I think this is a great move. GW makes a majority of their sales on any new product on the week of release. Reprints never sell any where as well as the initial print run. By offering soft cover reprints, GW is saving themselves money on the printing, shipping, and st...

Dakka Forum: GW don't understand the concept of buying in bulk?

When I saw the new army bundles GW have released for Christmas I was pretty impressed, there's a lot of great themed armies there and most of them actually adhere to the FOC.

I've been eyeing up Militarum Tempestus for a while and when I saw the airborne assault bundle I got a little excited and assumed being that as it was a bundle and its Christmas there'd be some kind of discount. Being the cautious buyer I am I ran the numbers anyway and found out it was the exact same cost as buying everything individually.

What's up with this? Are they preying on less cautious peoples assumptions? I feel no rush to buy it if its the exact same price as normal. It doesn't make much sense.

After writing this I'm not sure what kind of response I expect and realise I'm just having a winge but hey.

Thoughts?

Dakka Forum: Too Many Riptides....

I'll start by saying that our meta is extremely casual, none of us are particularly great, and I can honestly say there is no cheese. As a result none of us are really sure what to do now that someone is going all in to win. He currently has 7 Riptides (three standard, one for farsight, and three Forgeworld Y'varhas). We're considering banning the Y'varhas, because at the moment they are in the experimental stage, but even then he'd run as many of the standard as possible. 500 point game? 1 Riptide. 1000 points, three Riptides. Our main Ork player is getting absolutely wrecked and is considering leaving the game for a few months, I've got a really casual, fluffy dark angels list and keep getting absolutely rolled over.

What can I do to deal with a Riptide at 500 points? I have a chance with my librarian (psychic shriek), but he stands in the far back corners, and psychic shriek is far from reliable. Lascannon squads are dead by turn 2, and the jet movements make it easy for him to stay in cover.

Alternatively, what about at 1000? Terminators are too slow to get into melee, and he has interceptor on all of them. At this point my dev squads get absolutely obliterated, and a librarian is his first target.

Better question, is it worth even playing him? The few wins I had were due to him underestimating my librarian, and all he did was complain for the rest of the night about me being terrible at the game. For once I am legitimately pissed at someone.
